What I Love About Halloween Day Two


Welcome back to the second day of What I Love About Fall/Halloween Blog Hop.  This hop is scheduled from Oct. 7 at 8:00 am through Oct.8 at 11:00 pm(central time).  If you just happened to come to this blog, you can start at the beginning with Lisa Peters.  If you just came from Tammy’s blog, then you are in the right spot.

    We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies.  There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy, and a great grand prize for this hop.
The hop is a 2 day hop so you will have plenty of time to make it through the whole hop lineup twice.  Check out each blog and see what blog candy you can win at the individual stops.  Please come back both days to see great projects.

I love Halloween and Fall.  I love decorating, giving out candy, seeing all the cute little kids in their costumes, dressing up, taking the kiddos trick or treating, hayrides, cider, donuts and the pumpkin patch.  Raking the leaves and jumping in them.  The pretty falls colors.  It is so much fun!

I did two cards for today's project.  The card is a Halloween one.  I found the little picture so I matted it with a oval cut with George.  The Black Pumpkin Paper is from BoBunny.(Totally in love with this paper)  I added some ribbon, little title, and a pumpkin button.
In the inside, I lined it with some orange sponge patterned paper.  I cut three ovals from George to form a pumpkin, and inked around them with a cateye.  I cut "Boo" with Simply Charmed.  And, the Cat was from Paper Dolls on Black Bling.  I used a glaze pen on the cat and also on the little face in Boo. 

My second project is a Fall card.  Again, I found a little picture and matted it in a oval cut with George.  I added some leaf back ground paper and ribbon.  I used Doodlecharms to cut the leaves and acorn.  I inked around the leaves and acorn. I used a glaze pen on the acorn and pop dotted it up.
In the inside, I lined the inside of the card with tan sponged paper.  I found a little shaped box and I cut "Happy Fall" with Simply Charmed.  I used some of the leaves and acorn I cut with Doodlecharms.  Again, using the glaze pen and pop dotting the acorn.  I inked around the leaves and acorn. I also used glaze pen on the little face on the saying.

I am giving away a little package of Halloween Blog candy which consists of some stickers, embellishments and a bottle of glitter glue(stickles).  To be eligible for my blog candy, you must leave a comment on my blog each day and be a follower.   

Your next stop is Sherry Have a great day and thanks for hopping with us.  I would also like to thank Lisa for hosting this fun hop!
